It almost doesn't seem worth it, really. The PlayStation 3 slim is right around the corner, selling for $299 with a 120GB hard drive, so why buy the 80GB system for $299? Well, it's bigger, and you might be able to grab it in a bundle if you play yor cards right? Either way, it's your $299 PlayStation 3 option until the Slim hits early next month.

Not mentioned during the press conference, a quick call to GameStop confirms that the 160GB system has dropped to $399 as well, so if you've been holding off on picking one up, now is the time.

Why would I buy a 80GB PS3 at $299 when I can wait a couple of weeks and buy the new PS3 "slim" model with a 120GB HDD for the same price?
